Oh my! This is something I promised to [livejournal.com profile] rearranged and [livejournal.com profile] badjujuboo, and is an in no way comprehensive list of things I've liked in Avengers fandom. Cutting by pairings because whoo boy, this got long! I haven't put anything in the way of summaries and tbh my laziness is so epic that this being anything more than a big list of ugly links feels like SUCH an accomplishment. Endless respect to people who actually rec properly omg.

Also! I've tried not to rec anything that is based in comic canon to such an extent that you actually need to know the canon beforehand. (AKA there are no post Civil War fics waiting to choke you with angst hurrah!)

edit: 23/10/2012 - OKAY so even just since posting this list I've read a few more awesome fics so I'm going to keep adding to this list intermittently. Enjoy!

Tony/Steve )


Clint/Coulson )


Bruce/Tony )


others, threesomes, moresomes, multiple pairings )

There absolutely MUST be amazing things I've missed out, so hey, drop anything in the comments that you think I/other people should read. As the list (especially the 'other' section) indicates, I will read pretty much anything haha.

WOW, I have done no work today because I kept rereading ALL THE THINGS. Happy sunday, guys.

Alright so I'm jumping on the bandwagon a couple of days late to participant in the [community profile] snowflake_challenge.

My main (only? 2013 was actually kinda bitchin. The latter half, anyway) regret about last year is how thoroughly I fell out of fandom. I was sad about various of my Marvel fics-in-progress getting jossed (sometimes literally!), not that interested in writing HP or Merlin, and utterly unable to finish anything Star Trek. Sigh. And when I can't write, I feel like I'm not participating, and I stop reading, which sucks. SO! There is this challenge, which I'm hoping will reawaken my fannish glee. I'm gonna start from day 1, even though I'm late, and hopefully catch up as the challenge progresses.


In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


(note: some of these are super old! given my fandom-fail the last year, that shouldn't be a surprise. I've tried to pick things that I feel give an overview of Me And Fandom.)

Tell Me About It [Harry Potter, James Sirius/Scorpius, Albus/Scorpius, explicit, 4500 words]

This fic makes me cackle every time I think of it. I have no idea where it came from, only that I wrote it probably in the space of a couple of hours. BASICALLY, Scorpius decides he's going to seduce one or more Potter brothers, failing to realise that they have plans of their own. As someone said in a comment, James and Al are "about an inch away from being very bad Potters indeed and getting closer than the average bros". I like the sneakiness of all participants. My favourite parts to write, and to reread, are the scenes between Al and James, because they're such little shits.


Rebellion (And Suffering the Consequences) [Harry Potter, Draco/James Sirius, explicit, 21000 words]

In this fic, James is young and pretty broken up still over discovering his father's infidelity when he gets a job working under Draco Malfoy and begins an affair of his own.

Okay. I wasn't going to include this one, but after a bit of thought, I realised that my 'fandom experience' would be woefully incomplete if I didn't acknowledge this fic. There's a lot in here that is very personal, and it's only in the last year or so that I've reread it and managed to get all the way through it. In some ways I like it. I know that some readers were dissatisfied with the ending, and I totally understand why. Narratively, the thing that happened should not have happened. I want to shake James until his teeth rattle and make him run in the other direction. But a lot of the reason I'm proud of this fic is that they are pretty much all very flawed people, and they don't do what they should. They do what they want, even in the face of the knowledge that it's wrong. Another thing I really like about this fic is James and Draco's profession. Basically, wizarding lawyers.



We Pull These Jobs to Make A Little Money (No One Gets Hurt if They Don't Act Funny) [Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, explicit, 49000 words]

In which Arthur and the knights are bank robbers, and Merlin is a (temporarily) unwitting employee of their latest target. AKA in which Leashy attempts plot with some degree of success! I had to include this one because I spent so long writing it, so long bending my flist's ears about it, and so long dancing around the room when I finally finished it.


The Wrong Avalon [Merlin x Doctor Who, Arthur/Merlin, Amy/Rory, teen, 12000 words]

A crossover! *le gasp* I've never really written crossovers, and certainly not long ones. These two fandoms just seemed at the time I started writing (around s5 of Doctor Who, between s2 and 3 of Merlin) to be absolutely crying out for some crossover action. The basic premise is that when Merlin sent Arthur to Avalon, he really should have specified mystical island, rather than intergalactic space hotel, OOPS. Epic fail, Merlin, epic fail. So, the Doctor takes Amy and Rory there for their honeymoon, and that's when the characters meet. Naturally, the Doctor can't help interfering, and even more naturally, True Love Conquers All. I like this one primarily because I feel like I really nailed 11's style of speech, and managed to hit the single-episode-adventure feel that I enjoyed about both shows at the time.


The Only Tune I Like [Marvel, Tony/Pepper, 3200 words]

Aaaaand my most recent fandom, hurrah. SO, there's a moment early on in The Avengers when Pepper whispers something incentive-like to Tony and his face, you guys oh my god. I was genuinely distracted from the next five minutes of the film because PEGGING PEGGING THAT WAS TOTALLY ABOUT PEGGING. So that's what this is. The pegging fic I was promising myself from my first viewing of the film. I like this because it's a canon pairing! Wait, come back, that sounded odd. The thing is, me and canon? Meh. We're nodding acquaintances at best. Generally I am too desperate for any little bit of queer representation to get too invested in canon (invariably het) ships but Tony and Pepper? Yes please. Eternally yes please.

The main reason I like this fic is because writing Tony Stark is never not fun, but it is also very often angsty and kind of draining (issues re: intelligence, parents, alcohol. If I was a) cooler, b) fictional and c) a very wealthy dude, I like to believe I would be Tony Stark), so this little porny interlude was a whole bunch of fun to write. Also, Pepper is a queen, a flawless HBIC, and I would never turn down the opportunity to write her rendering Tony non-verbal.



And that's it! I will try to do the next couple of days soon as I am unexpectedly un-busy until Sunday, woot.

Title: Clueless, or: How I Learned To Stop Being a Selfish Prick and Love a Capsicle by withthepilot
Fandom: Avengers
Rated: Explicit
Pairings: Tony/Steve, Clint/Phil, Jane/Thor, Bruce/Pepper, with bits of other pairings in there too.

Author's Summary: Okay, so you're probably thinking, This guy seems like a total douche.

You're half right. But seriously, I'm a completely normal teenager. A normal genius-billionaire-philanthropist-playboy teenager. Who goes to a school for government agents and superheroes in training. Every morning, I get up, trim my goatee, take a shot of Jack Daniels (which Ke$ha totally stole from me, by the way), and pick out my school clothes.

A Clueless AU, starring Tony Stark.

Word Count: 37k

Why I Loved It: COME BACK HERE RIGHT THIS INSTANT. Yes I said Clueless AU. I love Clueless, okay? A lot. So as soon as I saw this I clicked with mixed hopes because it just seemed so out there, you know? But then out there AUs are golden when they work. And this so, so completely worked for me.

Obviously, Tony is Cher and Steve Josh, but I'm not going to say who everyone else is because I want people to giggle-snort the same way I did when various bits became clear. There's a smattering of dialogue lifted from the film (I was most disappointed that my life motto – I'm totally buggin'! I feel like such a bonehead! – was not there, but still, minor detail) which also works well.

Mainly, I love this fic because it cracked me the fuck up during a fit of insomnia the other night, which is just what I needed. The dialogue sparkles in both a Tony-esque and a Clueless-esque way. Also! I don't listen to podfics so often, but for those of you so inclined, there's a link to a recording in the author's notes.

Title: Leave The Pieces by [profile] formerdinosaur
Fandom: South Park
Rated: R
Pairings: Stan/Kyle plus others, some spoilery under Cartman/Butters, Craig/Tweek, Damien/Pip, Kenny/Wendy
Author's Summary: Stan and Kyle meet as strangers in their mid-twenties, both of them astounded to meet someone else who doesn't remember the first ten years of his life. Only one person from South Park remembers that they existed, though no one has ever believed his ravings about the super best friends who went missing. When Kenny learns that Stan and Kyle have been reunited, he suspects the forces that separated them as children have returned, and that the town's only hope resides in their missing memories.
Word Count: 250k

Why I Loved It: Well, first of all, I cannot imagine a South Park world in which Stan and Kyle are not joined at the hip/brain. So the premise of this fic is in itself kind of heart breaking - what if they lost each other and never even knew it? The plot is tight and pacey, and it brings in so many of my favourite, criminally underused South Park characters.

The author has a bunch of South Park fics, and all the ones I've read do a fantastic job of taking the extremes we see on the show and making them into believable, recognisable adult characters. And also, of taking some of the South Park events (I'm thinking in this one, of Butters' parents behaviour) that are just part of the backdrop of the insanity of this little mountain town and saying no, hey, wait, how would this effect someone? Who would they grow up to be from this starting point?

The relationship between Stan and Kyle is a complicated, slow-burning thing, but their instant dedication to each other, you guys. They're both damaged by their amnesia and the lives they've lived subsequently in very different ways, and while finding each other is really only the start of this story, you can't help a sense of relief that Stan and Kyle are back together - the centre holds.

The other characters are wonderful. I cried genuine tears over Kenny. In fact, the sections from Kenny's POV (the POV changes, but not quickly, if that's something that puts you off) are possibly my favourite. I ached for Kenny, for the fervency of his belief in Stan and Kyle, and the consequences of this. This is why I love fanfic, okay? It makes me emotional over a clever cartoon about foul mouthed children, particularly the one who dies every episode. I cried buckets.

Full disclosure: [profile] formerdinosaur = [profile] hollycomb so it was always bound to be scary-good, right?

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


Yup, so I'm doing this.

My first thought was that I wouldn't be able to think of 100 anythings. However! I am going to be doing 100 fics that blew my mind. No theme or whatever beyond 'holy shit, I love that!'. Some will be old favourites from HP, things I've loved in Merlin, some will be new things as and when I read.

Basically, I am a bit of a shitty commenter when it comes to fic, and sometimes I feel like I get so caught up in writing that I neglect the reading side of fandom. I adore and want to celebrate the skills on show in fic writing

fyi: these posts will be unlocked


Happy sunday, you gorgeous people. ♥

Keeping a list under here for reference )

Have a work-in progress you want done?
Come on over and get it done in a week!


I have a fic that I've been thinking for ages should only take a week or so of concerted effort to finish. Fingers crossed!

Green by [profile] canarypaper, Gwaine/Merlin, PG-13, WIP (looks like 2 parts out of 4 complete), spoilers for all of S3.
Summary: Gwaine had not had someplace to call home for Yule in quite a long time.

It's a fic based on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. *flails*

DO YOU NEED ANY MORE PERSUADING THAN THAT?

Yes? Okay, well in that case, I will say that the author really nails show canon!Gwaine, and melds it perfectly with the legend.
